there are new dorms and old dorm, who are based on the top of the hostel. the bigger dorm, the old one are probably the worst. never see this before. Staff are "ok"...don't try to ask to much, you will feel you make them boring. Don't forget to add your name on your stuffs in the fridge, staff eat your foods. what say else? location? yeah. good. but coppacabana is not the best place to stay in Rio. If you have a little bit more of budget, pay 1 or $2 more and get an hostel more clean.
I arrived at 2pm at the hostel. When the young guy from the staf brought me in the room, it was a big surprise : - first, the dormitory was a mess. I felt like a hurricane passed there. Clothes, shoes, backpack, etc....a F***g mess. It looked like a teenager room. - second, my bed was dirty, the sheet was not ready, nothing. i asked to the guy, what was this mess, and he just answered that the previous persons who got my bed, was supposed to check out, but they kept their stuffs in the room
